This tutorial is about making ice stalactites, which you can use to create ice effects in plants or objects. That is up to you. I developed my technique and adapted it to my personal taste and that is what Im showing here. Hope you find it useful!

To anybody else who has this problem, it happens whenever your circle doesn't have a background color on the same layer as it. The darker background must be part of the same layer as the lighter circle, the filter pulls from it to create the spikes.
It's not in the wrong order. I do this in CS3, if you're using other I don't know if something can be different, but I think not. Anyway, the steps order is Stylize Extrude- Stylize Wind- Polar coordinates. You made some mistake because, all the people that already try this get the final result that I present.
ohhk well i use CS4 and if you do the wind after polar the wind lines are straight and not all curved, its just an observation, im not getting up you or anything, and you seem to be getting defensive about it, i just thought id let you know to see what you thought
well all the values are right and ive tried the circles at three different sizes, and each time, the wind strokes put in it curve upwards and down in a sort of upside down 'u' but not as sharp i suppose. its sort of like a bracket ) but on its side ;D
